What We Do

The American Cancer Society is on a mission to free the world from cancer. Our mission delivery efforts are focused on the critical areas of Research, Education, Advocacy and Service. These four areas serve as the foundation of how we can make our biggest impact on cancer yet.

- We continue to provide information, support and guidance to patients and families 24 hours a day, seven days a week, via our free help line, 1-800-227-2345, and our website, cancer.org.
- ACS CAN continues to advocate for access to critical health care at the federal, state, and local levels – an urgent need in the face of this pandemic.
- Hope Lodge is not currently open to the public due to COVID-19.
